Here's how to do it...                                                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                                   
Lean all of the keys towards the back (they are still attached to                                                                                  
their levers).                                                                                                                                     
Hold the plastic key plate vertically off the front edge of the bottom                                                                             
of the keyboard                                                                                                                                    
frame with the top tilted slightly back to yourself.                                                                                               
Starting from the bottom row, tilt the keys into their holes. Hold the                                                                             
plate up a little more vertically and repeat with the next row, and so                                                                             
on. By the time you are putting the Red keys in place, all of the                                                                                  
green keys are captive.                                                                                                                            
Works every time, and only takes about a minute.
